Suicide prevention research projects

Suicidality is a significant public health problem that results in morbidity, loss of individual life, potential grief to loved ones, and significant healthcare expenditure.

The Thompson Institute is conducting world-leading research to prevent suicide. This includes clinical trials of novel treatments for suicidality, and research addressing four components of suicide prevention:

  1. Promoting health and wellbeing
  2. Supporting people who are upset
  3. Mental health assessment
  4. Evidence-based interventions
